Tropical Taco Salad

Grilled chicken (I brushed mine with olive oil and a little taco seasoning), about 2 cups cut into bite size pieces
Green leaf or boston bibb lettuce
Grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Avocado
2 cups black beans
2 ears roasted corn, cut off the cob
Grilled mango
Orange bell pepper

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2/3 cup light sour cream
2 tbs salsa (you choose how hot)
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp smoked paprika (use smoked or leave it out, regular will not give you the same flavor)
juice of 1 lime
salt to taste

First grill your chicken, corn and mango. Use a little olive oil on the corn.
Chop your chicken, mango, pepper, and avacado into bite size pieces, and cut the corn off the cobb.
Combine the lettuce, veggies, chicken, beans and mango together. Make your dressing and toss together.

For the dressing, I combined everything in a food processor.

This salad was absolutely delicious! Could be a main salad or a side salad.
